    No they'll be higher this year, last year the paper was harder.

    Doubt it. Last year's paper was a bit harder imo but not by a great amount. I think it'd rise by 2 or 3 marks.

    Also last year's paper was a complete surprise for that year, but we knew what our paper would be like because we could see the 2014 paper. I reckon 54 or 55 for A*

    I was looking at a past paper and one of the questions was on the formation of composite volcanoes and the mark scheme talked about convection currents and plate boundaries but I thought it was to do with build up of layers of ash and lava.

    Can someone explain the formation please just so I can make sure?
    The convection current is what drives the two plates apart at the constructive plate boundary. Composite volcanoes form because the rising magma at any plate boundary other than conservative. The lava is so viscous it can sometimes cool in the vent causing magma and pressure to build up until it is released in a violent explosion. I'm not sure if that answers your question...

    How did everyone do? I thought it was kind of hilarious actually - all of that line measuring & shape describing. Totally flunked the coastal habitat 8 marker though

    I found that paper easy, I'm confident I got an A
    I did restless earth, living world and coasts
    Anyone who did restless earth what did you put for "the shape of the volcano (caldera)". I thought it was a stupid question because it's based on people's opinion really not geography. Anyone else agree?

    I agree! I just wrote it was roughly a circle and I measured an estimate of how large it was.

    I think it went really well! I forgot the name of Sea Palling for the Coasts 8 marker, I did Happisburgh & made up some random place for the conflict for that. Other than that it went really well so I'm hoping for a solid A or even A* if I revise human enough!!

    I looked that up as soon as I got home and it's something to do with ice ages..!!! Definitely not in the CGP revision guide.
